Hip or Holy

Our culture is growing increasingly anti-biblical, and many churches have grown evangelistically languid. Evangelicalism has a strong appeal for many in the generation of younger fundamantalists. But accommodating to the culture, feeding the desire to be hip and holy, is a major threat to the purity of the fundamental church and its future leaders. ... We're also teaching them that if they cave in to the culture, buy into evangelical philosophy and start looking or acting like the world, then they will fail in the ministry in our view, and we believe in the view of their Master, Whose opinion matters above all else.

Dr. Steve Hankins, "Training for Ministry," in Today's Christian Preacher, Vol. 15, No. 1, Summer 2007.
